in libya is this election season's surprise. similar to the iranian hostage crisis back in 1979 and 1980, and the george bush drunk driving story in 2000. if this is a political october surprise, how does that affect the vote on november 6. we will ask george w. bush's chief of staff, andy card about how the narrative would be different if president bush was in office today. we have been hearing a lot about that some other news outlets today. why there was a potential cover-up on a terror attack on u.s. soil, where is the media on this? governor mitt romney spoke to a foreign-policy topic forum at valley college in california. it shows president obama leading in pennsylvania by more than a point. but that did not stop the governor from blasting the president for calling deadly turmoil around the muslim world, a bump in the road. >> i don't consider 20 or 30,000 people dying just a bump in the road. or a muslim brotherhood president in egypt a bump in the road. i don't consider the killing of our diplomats in libya as a bump in the road, and i sure as heck don't consider iran becoming nuc

"we do assess that some of of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with or sympathetic to al qaeda." so it's not come full circle but a 180 from where the administration started on this issue. >> we saw a picture of that scene the charred debris and what was left. why haven't officials been able to investigate that further now? >> reporter: it's a chaotic situation there. it's not somalia in the early 1990s but there are no sent al authority. there are militias that run different portions of that the sun. secretary of state c

." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in this first debate? the economy. look at this poll. which candidate would better handle the economy? the president, 49%, governor romney, 48%. a dead heat. the president has to defend his record. governor romney not only needs to attack his record but to convince voters he has a better place to take them if
is that five weeks before an election you see, you see republican senators and congressmen on tv -- and you -- railing against the president. this is a process that's taken over three years to get to the point where if you talk to the folks in afghanistan, al-qaeda is ineffective there, and they're moving places, and we're going after them -- megyn: well, unfortunately, it looks like they weren't that ineffective in libya. but the question here, dick, is whether you think, you know, listen, you're a party guy x you're a politically -- and you're a politically savvy guy. was it a smart move for president obama to go to vegas? with all due respect to our friends out there, at that point in time to campaign? >> i think that he can't stop, you know, go into a hole and stop the campaign and stop all the other things he has to do as president we had this horrible -- because we had this horrible tragedy. he's not on the ground in-in ya. we have people who are on the ground in libya. he is in total communication with all those people wherever he is. so the idea that somehow he ought to stop life an
record, but a challenger would be for this recommendation. >> is a it is a peculiar election. i think what should have been a slamdunk, we are failing miserably as far as an alternative to it is absolutely right. this is an electorate that wants to vote for change. the question is, governor, why should we vote for you. how do you resolve all the questions that we have about you and what are your clear alternatives to the current mess? that question has to be answered for the governor to win. lou: all right, and gentlemen, thank you very much. well, the elections, much more elections and we are working on it with the "a-team." benjamin netanyahu insists that they can draw a clear red line to stop iran from building a bomb. will that redline stop iran? or will it lead to war? ambassador john bolton joins us. one of the financial world's one of the financial world's leading everyone in the nicu, all the nurses wanted to watch him when he was there 118 days. everything that you thought was important to you changes in light of having a child that needs you every moment. i wouldn't trade hi

to say the prosecution, president obama, hasn't made his case and that his record isn't enough for re-election, and i'm not going to give you all the detail of what i'll do, what a romney presidency would mean. make your choice based on the president. that's the plan? >> no, no. listen, what the plan is that the public will have plenty of detail and information to be able to make a judgment on governor romney and what his plan is for the future. but let's look at what the president is saying as well. and you're right, david, in this respect. the president has had four years to lay this out, and now a campaign. and the president's just trying to run out the clock. he desperately wants to run out the clock with platitudes which sound nice, and i give him that. the president is very good at that. but in the end, i think that both sides have to look at this campaign and say, what are we going to lay out over the next 36 days? and i think that's really important. and i think governor romney will lay out some very important points over the next 36 days that will make people believe once and for all
election -- when you yourself said sometimes it takes time to get the final answers? >> erin, we sent a letter on september 20th that wouldn't responded to as of yesterday. subcommittee chairman chaffetz sent that letter. we started this right away. we continued pursuing it. but let's understand, men and women are serving us overseas around the world. and if what happened in libya happens again because we waited until after election, 30 or 60 days, we haven't done our job. the secretary is working right now before the election. she has put together a panel to start looking at this. we're doing our job, too. and just because it's an election doesn't mean members of congress shouldn't work, including fact-finding and that's what we're doing. we're doing it as timely as we can. candidly, i would have preferred the september 20th letter would have been responded to sooner. >> fair enough. thank you very much, chairman issa. we appreciate your time tonight. so the question continues. were warning signs missed? well, the man who briefed the ambassador stevens is standing by. >>> but first,

states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling which talking points exposed earlier this week as being heavily weighted to the democratic side. we here are putting our trust in rasmussen this year because that outfit was the most accurate polling center in 2008. american society is changing rapidly with social media dominating the lives of many citizens and bitter partisanship on both sides backed by billions of dollars. just today we learned that our pal george soros is ponying up close to $2 million to help the president. that kind of money talks. and what it says will not be complimentary to mitt romney. the governor has the economic stats on his side. but it's clear that he and paul ryan still have not convinced the casual voter that they can improve the economy. mr. romney's moment will come next wednesday in denver when he confronts mr. obama in the first debate. the governor it's the only debate. he must win or he will not recover. he has to show that he
